TV Tonight: Farewell, TRL

Today, MTV bids farewell to a onetime pop culture behemoth: TRL. Not long ago, you all shared your memories of the video request show, which ranged from Jesse Camp to Mariah Carey's Popsicles to drooling over the Backstreet Boys. For tonight's special, some of the people involved with the show will be stopping by to do a little reminiscing of their own.

The two-hour "Total Finale Live" episode features host Carson Daly returning for what he's called his "high school reunion." Joining the fun: the Backstreet Boys, Fall Out Boy, and Justin Timberlake, among others. Mariah Carey will swing by the studio; Beyonce and 50 Cent will be among the performers; Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, and Nelly will collaborate for a special performance; and Daly hinted that even more special guests could swing by at showtime.

It's only appropriate to bring back the VJs, too, and so Lyndsey Rodrigues, Vanessa Minnillo, Dave Holmes, Jesse Camp, Hilarie Burton, La La Vasquez, and Quddus will join TRL-ers Carson Daly and Damien Fahey in the studio. With all of that going on, I wonder if they'll have time to play any videos?

The episode will air at 8 p.m. EST (check your local listings elsewhere) tonight. Will you be tuning in for one last look at TRL? After the jump, you'll find a video from MTV telling everything you need to know about the rise and fall of TRL in 60 seconds. To check it out, just
